By Lucy Doolan-ClarkA creative economy is a sector in which the majority of the value created is produced by a small number of creative organisations.
For those who don’t believe in this, the reality is that the vast majority of creative work is produced in large corporations and by large firms, not small independent creative organisations such as yours.
But how does one define this sector?
This question has come up again recently as we consider the rise of digital marketing.
As we look ahead to the future, it seems like it is crucial that we all recognise that the creative sector is an important part of our economy.
So let’s look at how it works, how it has changed, and what can be done to help create a more prosperous and sustainable one.
In short, the creative industry is a complex, dynamic, and dynamic area, where people, businesses and organisations work together to create and distribute creative works.
This includes both the creative industries, such as design, video, music, fashion, photography and film, as well as the non-creative industries, which include software, technology, publishing and software and entertainment industries.

What is the Creative Industry?
The creative economy as a sector is defined by the US Department of Commerce, the US Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA), and the US Digital Service Commission (DSC) as follows:The US Department has defined the term “Creative Industry” as:Creative, interactive, and engaging media, products, and services are created through collaborative relationships among creatives, creative industries and their customers, producers, distributors, and licensors.
Creative industries are generally considered to be creative-related businesses that provide a broad range of services, from providing information and entertainment to promoting their products, selling products, licensing their products and services, and creating products, content, and processes.
Creative industries are not necessarily independent; they can also be commercial enterprises and/or government agencies.
For example, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has defined Creative Industry as a “specialty sector”, which includes healthcare and related services.
The Creative Economy is defined as a multidisciplinary sector that includes both non-commercial and commercial businesses.
The term “commercial” includes both traditional retail and services businesses, and the term is used in the US government’s definition of Creative Industries.
The creative industries that are recognised by the government include, but are not limited to: art, music and dance, design, photography, film, publishing, software and other media, entertainment, sports, health and fitness, and other non-profits and community-based enterprises.
The government defines Creative Industries as:For more detail on the definition of the Creative Industries, read our Understanding the Creative Sector.
What are the main factors that define the Creative economy?
The government definition of a Creative Industry does not necessarily mean that all creative work can be classified as creative work.
Some creative work may not be considered creative work at all.
Instead, it may be classified under the broader definition of “creative services” or “services related to creative industries”.
The definition of services and products does not imply that the services are not provided by the creative organisations, the content is not provided for free or for profit and there are no financial incentives.
The definition of products also does not require that the content be produced by the organisations themselves, or that the products are manufactured by the organisation itself.
The definition also does need to be adjusted as new services and goods emerge.
For instance, a new technology or product may be considered to have a transformative impact when it is made by an organisation that is not a commercial entity.
The services and/ or products may also have to be available in a specific geographic area to reach a specific audience.
For example, in order to create the iPhone X, Apple would need to develop and develop new services that are accessible in countries where the iPhone has not yet been released.
This is a much harder task in the UK.
The UK does have a high-speed internet access service, called the Gifford Pinchot Broadband network, that is able to deliver services to all of its population in a geographic area that is only accessible by those who are connected to that network.
But this service does not provide a direct, free service to its customers.
Rather, the service will be provided by an online service provider.
The Giffords service, for example, will be available to customers in the City of London and will cost between £99.99 to £149.99.
However, the iPhone is only available in the United Kingdom, so the cost of
